MAC In the Groove and Alice & Olivia Haul

I feel like I kind of slacked getting my haul up MAC's In the Groove and Alice & Olivia Collections but I've had baby showers and pink on my mind. I'll spare you the long drawn out story on how lame it was to get Stereo Rose but the short version goes like this: a few days before the launch I thought I wanted Stereo Rose so I presaled it at Nordstrom. The night before the launch, they canceled my presale. I called 3 other Nordstrom's and they were all presaled out too. Lo and behold I found a Macy's counter that had one left so I they held it for me and I picked it up the day the In the Groove collection launched. I should have known better, I had to do the same thing to get the elusive Marine Life from the To the Beach collection.

I wasn't able to get swatches for the entire collections but if you'd like to see those I recommend hitting up Karla's website for swatches. She is the shiznit when it comes to swatching. Click here for In the Groove swatches and here for Alice & Olivia swatches.

I'll post soon with my own swatches and comparisons for my haul.

Great haul for me but I haven't gotten yet. I'm on the edge of my seat!! Nice haul! I couldn't get any of the pigments because they are all sold out online! I was really looking forward to those.

  2. Great haul. I posted mine yesterday but keep thinking I want to get a few more. Really loved this collection. xx

  3. I love the Soften the Mood MEs, I'm usually not a fan of the trios- but this one was too gorg to pass up!
